Bizarre fundraiser places toilets on front lawns to "flush away hunger"

A woman who lives in Hope, Indiana is hoping to end hunger by using a rather unusual means: a commode.

Whitney Budd is the president of Student's Fund for Hope, an organization that helps pay school-related expenses for kids. She's currently trying to raise $2,000 to help settle unpaid student lunch accounts in small claims court.

Budd is helping the kids through brightly-painted toilets that appear on people's front lawns. 

"I thought, "How funny would it be if we traveled toilets and flushed away hunger?"" she told WXIN-TV in Indianapolis. "They can pay $10 to take it away or they can pay $20 dollars to send it to a friend or a family member or a neighbor."

For $30, the house can ensure a toilet never appears on their front yard again -- at least by Budd's doing. There's also the "Party Pooper" list for those who haven't had a commode sprout on their lawn -- pay $40 to preemptively prevent it from ever happening. 

Wacky as it sounds, it's working.  Budd has sent four toilets to 45 different homes, raising $1,000 so far.

The flushing continues until Friday.
